6:02am
having underaged sex, and this officer accused of making a false arrest. he is on administrative leave right now. the officer is the father of the teenaged girl. she is 14 and reportedly had consensual sex with her 15-year- old boyfriend so the officer- father allegedly rode his motorcycle to the boy's house last month in full uniform to call him out. that's where the story splits. the boy's parents told the "mercury news" that the cop put handcuffs on the boy and the cop's lawyer says he just lectured him. the boy's parents then decided to report the incident to the san jose police wondering if that was maybe an abuse of power. that led to their son actually being cited for the sex and the cop's daughter was also cited, according to the "mercury news." and i'm here live now with steve clark, a former prosecutor and current defense attorney. thanks for joining us this morning. >> good morning. >> reporter: you think how this is proceeds depends on the boy's parents. absolutely. what's going to be key here, did this boy's parents consent
6:03am
to him being scared straight by this officer or was this vigilantism, a police officer take the law into his own hands? when you're a police officer you're always on duty and if you're going to cuff somebody, you have need to have a legitimate reason for doing it. >> reporter: reportedly these parents also have cell phone video of this arrest going on where this boy is allegedly handcuffed. that's probably going to come into play as well? >> absolutely. the witness statements and those cell phone videos are going to be key here and the district attorney will look at that in deciding whether to charge false imprisonment against this police officer. >> reporter: all right. mr. clark, thank you for joining us. we'll talk to you again at 6:30. back to you, sydnie. >> can you ask mr. clark, there were charges filed against both of the children, right? what happens there? i mean, is any of this made public? >> reporter: well, they are minors. that's off the top of my legal brain i suppose. sydnie is wonder, the charges against the teenagers for having sex, that is a misdemeanor? >> it is because of the age of the parties.
6:04am
it is illegal for two minors to have sex. whether that case goes anywhere is very unlikely i think because neither one of them will testify because they both will be incriminating themselves. i don't think that's going anywhere. >> reporter: the d.a.'s office usually passes on tha prosecution. >> they may get counseling to deter this behavior with you i don't see prosecution. >> thank you, anne makovec in san jose. it has been four years since california has executed a death row inmate. that could change next week. a federal judge says he will decide by friday whether the state can execute albert brown, convicted of the 1980 rape and murder of a 15-year-old girl in riverside county. official at san quentin say the state's refurbished death chamber will be ready for the planned execution next wednesday if judge lifts the moratorium on capital punishments. it was implemented after a judge said the state's lethal injection method caused great

6:25am
on your commute. >> personally, i think commuters already know it. a fast-moving breach of the popular social networking site twitter put 150 million users at risk of an embarrassing hack yesterday. they didn't have to do anything. brian cooley is with us today and this is scary. i mean, hopefully we can get some advice on how to avoid this or, you know, some sort of immunity. this hacking is scary. >> reporter: this was sneaky. we have video that shows what happened if you got stung by this so here's an example. this is an antivirus company, so if you go to a twitter account in this case, would you find a typical twitter update and so let me show you what one of these looks like and would you mouse over it. no one is clicking. just follow the mouse cursor and as soon as you hover over the twitter update it takes you to another web page in this case a twitter page and hovering over the black area
6:26am
which is also a hack and goes to another area. >> you're not clicking. >> not downloading, opening anything, none of those things, you didn't have to do it here. you just moused over something so this was used to send people in some cases to some porn sites, to some people to other websites, it could be used to do almost anything and make a pop-up jump up like you see right there. so just by mousing over almost anything can be done. what happened was there was an issue with twitter itself. and they should have had this locked out. they do now. it took them most of yesterday morning to do it. the lesson here is, you couldn't have done anything yourself about this. there was nothing you had to do in terms of antivirus software. this is a thing where sometimes all the good advice i'll give but antivirus and avoiding hacks and exploits, you are still at the whim of websites doing things right inside. >> and the company -- what i think about is if you do online banking and things like this, these hacking incidents are a lot scarier than a few
6:27am
years ago. >> and they are embarrassing because they are personal sites. >> reporter: if one of these links sends out a tweet from me that sends to you a porn site which is part of what happened yesterday, not from me that i know of, it's really bad. >> what if you're at work and you accidentally run your mouse over something and it goes to a porn site? >> your boss is walking by right then. >> right. >> so because we're in this personal era where everything is coming from us in this social media era, these kind of hacks and exploits can have more of an embarrassing effect as well as perhaps leading you -- >> how do you prevent it? >> in general, notice that link we saw in the mouse over there was weird a big line of odd looking code. >> don't open attachments. >> but you naturally might have moused over it curiously and look what happened it opened. this is one of those, i wish we had a solution on this. for those who are curious, this only happened on the twitter website itself which you can use to work twitter. the third party applications you can install on your phone or your computer that also
6:28am
operate twitter for you were immune so it's somewhat limited but it was big. >> they fixed it quickly. >> within a few hours. three or four hours. >> keep us posted on this because as we get more into social networking, people really need to be aware. >> especially when it looks like it's coming from you. that's the embarrassing and potentially also damaging. >> thank you. >> thank you. all right. coming up, the highly paid leaders from the southern california city of bell arrested now. the charges they face as they head to court this morning. and a local police officer under investigation accused of making a false arrest on the teenaged boy believed to have had sex with his teenaged daughter. we'll sort it all out for you coming up next. ,,,,,,,,,,

it's wednesday, september 22nd. i'm sydnie kohara. and i'm elizabeth wenger. good morning, it's the wednesday, september 22. i'm sydnie kohara. >> i' elizabeth wenger. anne makovec is in san jose, where an officer is on leave and under investigation this morning. >> reporter: we confirmed just about an hour ago that there is a criminal investigation going on against the officer this morning, an officer accused of making a false arrest on a teenaged boy that was believed to have had sex
6:32am
with his teenaged stepdaughter. the officer is a father, obviously, of the teenaged 14- year-old girl and reportedly had consensual sex with her 15- year-old boyfriend so the officer-father allegedly rode his motorcycle to the boy's house last month in full uniform to call him out. that's where the story splits. the boy's parents told the "mercury news" that the cops put handcuffs on the boy. the cop's lawyer says he only lectured him. the boy's parents then decided to report the incident to the san jose police wondering if this could be an abuse of power that led to their son and the cop's daughter actually being cited for the sex. i'm here with steve clark our legal analyst, former prosecutor, now defense attorney. thanks for joining us. what kind of charges could this police officer be facing? >> the most serious charge within felony false imprisonment for unlawfulfully restraining the liberty of this boy. that is a very serious allegation if done under color of authority. so that will be the charge i think the d.a.'s looking at. but the key will be did the parents of the young boy
6:33am
consent to their son being sort of scared straight? >> reporter: because that is something that some parents -- these boot camp things like this, is that legal? >> yes. that would be legal. it wouldn't be criminal. clearly, there would still be an administrative investigation by the san jose police department because under any circumstances a very bad idea for a police officer to do this. >> reporter: now, apparently, in the san jose police department there is no law against somebody investigating their own family. does that surprise you to hear? >> it's not a good idea. this officer was doing more than investigating. he was interrogating. if this was a crime, it should have been turned over to the appropriate unit when a family member is involved. i think they will change that policy if that is their policy. >> reporter: the other people in trouble here the two teenagers accused of having sex charged with misdemeanors. how heavy is that charge. >> the juvenile probation department will lecture them but i don't think charges will be filed. it will be difficult to prophet case because neither would testify in court. >> reporter: so the main issue right now is going to be what
6:34am
will happen with the san jose police officer now on administrative leave. sydnie and elizabeth? >> very interesting. all right, thank you, anne makovec live for us in san jose this morning. it's been four years since california executed a death row inmate but that could change next week. a federal judge will decide by friday whether the state can execute albert brown. brown was convicted of the 1980 rape and murder of a 15- year-old girl in riverside county. officials at san quentin say the state's refurbished death chamber will be ready for a planned execution next wings if the judge lifts the moratorium on capital punishment. it was implemented after a judge said the state's lethal injection method caused great physical pain. for the first time we are getting a look inside the new execution chamber. it sits just outside death row in a single story structure. the inside is four times bigger than the old gas chamber and
6:35am
according to prison officials more efficient. a south bay teenager is under arrest for a suspected drunk driving crash that killed his friend who was riding with him. that crash was early yesterday morning. an suv slammed into a pole and caught fire on almaden expressway at o'grady drive in south san jose. 18-year-old rochon riveri was trapped in the burning car and died. more than 200 people gathered last night for a memorial at the scene of the crash. emily childress was the victim's ex-girlfriend. >> everyone needs to learn from it and not just, like, take lightly. it's horrible. it's, like, the biggest tragedy ever. >> 18-year-old mitchell pennings from san jose was found near the accident scene. he had minor injuries. pennings is charged with felony dui, fleeing the scene of an accident, and vehicular manslaughter. results of his blood alcohol tests are still out. several streets are closed right now in pleasant hill as
6:36am
crews try to repair a water main break. take a look at live pictures from the scene. this is the intersection of morello avenue and kiki drive. that's where the break was reported about 7:30 last night. this is the second water main break in the area in the past eight days. this break though is in a different segment of the same pipe. no cars are being allowed to pass on north and viking drive as crews work to repair the problem. all right. that's obviously a bump for the morning commute. time is now 3 -- 6:36. franklin gianna franco has traffic. on the freeways, westbound 4 break new wreck reported at morello avenue. overturned vehicle down the em bankment. all on the right shoulder. if you're making your way on 238 northbound right at 14th street we have new reports of
6:37am
an accident here. three cars involved. chp just headed out to the scene. no word on lanes being blocked. and the bay bridge metering lights are on. you're backed up at least to the first overpass. high wind advisory still in effect so use caution across the upper deck into san francisco. that's a check of your traffic. here's tracy with your forecast. hey, thanks, gianna. temperatures are still cool for this time of the year. average daytime high in concord, this time of the year in september, 86. 82 in santa rosa. 80 degrees in san jose. and 72 degrees in san francisco. today, we are on the cool side. 37 in concord. 13 degrees cooler than average, 73 in concord, 73 san jose. san francisco 66 degrees. so 6 to 7 degrees cooler than average. that's why we're on the cool side. here's a look at some more bay area cities today. mid-70s in sonoma and santa
6:38am
rosa, 69 hayward, 74 pleasanton. lower 70s in palo alto and santa clara. today we're on the cool side but for the weekend, the 90s are expected. 90-degree temperatures moving back into the bay area. we'll take a look at your seven-day forecast coming up. >> heat things up. thank you. in just a few hours, 8 current and former leaders in the southern california city of bell will be in court. they are under arrest for salary scandals. the los angeles county d.a. calls it corruption on steroids. and kurt hawkins is in downtown los angeles to explain the charges. good morning, kirk. >> reporter: sydnie, elizabeth, good morning to you. we just saw one of the prisoner transport vans make its way past -- it was empty so there is no doubt that the bell 8 could be inside the courthouse this morning after an early-morning wake-up call. their arraignment is at 8:30 this morning and we are expecting a standing room only crowd. in this video you can see robert rizzo in handcuffs the
6:39am
former cleave chief administrative officer. the ringleader spent the night in the twin towers correctional facilities here in downtown l.a. >> the complaint alleges they used the tax dollars collected from the hard working citizens of bell as their own piggy bank. >> if it's for improving the city and making our city better then i'm all for it but if it's for people to profit off it the way they did then it's totally wrong and so today means justice. >> reporter: now rizzo and serve other current and former bell city officials were also arrested in connection with the scheme. they are all charged with misappropriating more than $5.5 million. police, get this, to use a battering ram to get inside mayor oscar hernandez's home and take him into custody. now, the d.a. tells us that more arrests are possible. his investigation is still under way. rizzo is being held on a $3.2 million bond.
